Dundee at Dens Park is a massive game for Arbroath to watch live on TV tonight but I think it’s one we can take something from and we’re very confident we can do that. Perhaps Dundee are still hung over from being relegated from the Premier League last season and we might be able to catch them off guard.
However, they will be big favorites for promotion back to the Premiership, so we know how tough the game is going to be. We haven’t scored or conceded yet, but performances at Ayr United and Inverness at home, where we had more than enough chances of winning and were well up front, suggested it wasn’t the worst of the season’s starts .
It was similar to the playoff semi-final we lost to Inverness a few months earlier as we didn’t score another goal. I think Inverness will be back for the play-offs this season and Ayr United are a much improved team from last season.
So two draws in these games is not the worst. I’m looking for some late signings for the championship push. I think we’re pretty strong and confident about the coming season.
We ended up on a season-long loan from Aberdeen defender Mason Hancock, 19, after the move was canceled earlier this summer. What a player this boy is and will be.
As always, the focus for Arbroath this season is staying on top. However, if we achieve that goal, the play-offs are the next goal and who knows after that?
But we don’t get carried away. We’ll just go about our business in peace and let the pundits discuss who’s going to win the championship this season. One thing I want to say is that I’ve improved the club every season I’ve been at Arbroath.
However, after second place last season I found myself in a bit of a quandary – now there is only one place where we can improve on last season. We have made major improvements in the boardroom as our new sponsors have invested heavily and I have a new office.
As things improve on the pitch, we’re shifting up a gear off the pitch as well. The good times have arrived in Arbroath but we will keep pushing and see where it takes us. Come on, the lighties.
